This question is related to renormalization, but in the IR limit. It is assumed that unitarity does take care of IR divergencies in interacting theories like QED. But how would one interpret physically a theory that would effectively diverge at large wavelengths?

Do we expect De-Sitter cosmologies to be free of IR divergencies? why?
